SIMP Console Beta 0.17.0 Available

We are proud to announce the availability of SIMP Console 0.17.0. This is primarily a bugfix and refactoring release as we work towards a more complete Role-based Access Control (RBAC) solution.

Create New Entry

At this stage of the beta program, we are not guaranteeing database backward compatibility. You may have to rm -rf /var/db/simp/simp-console.db if using SQLite, or drop database and create database if using PostgreSQL. Once SIMP Console 1.0 is released we will support database upgradability.

Release Notes

  • The entire session handling system was rewritten to use a more secure and fully random session ID, as well as provide a session tracking mechanism before a user has fully logged in.
  • LDAP has been rewritten to the new authentication provider interface, and some new options have been exposed.
  • We fixed a bug with loading the main page on the most recent Google Chrome release.
  • We fixed issues with database transactions on PostgreSQL.


Feedback can be sent by clicking on the ‘Feedback’ link in the user dropdown, or by direct email.
